    Going to try out the Spez today on the trails of Case, plan on doing some loops close to the lot in case it needs to be walked back! Also will need to pick up some rim brake shoes if it's going to be my main ride for a few weeks.

    This should be interesting/fun!

    Now that I just talked to the shop and know what the problem is. I brought the bike in since I was getting a lot of creaking in the head tube area, we figured remove and check the bearing. They did that and reassembled and still creaked, Giant said replace bearings, tried that and still creaked. Shop decided it was probably not the bearings at this point and swapped the fork with another bike on the floor, creaking stopped. Talked to Fox and they think on of the stanchions either loosen up or wasn't pressed properly and to send it back for them to look at. Sounds like they will replace the crown and stanchions.

    The good of this is I get a free rebuild, bad is that I'm out the bike for probably 3 weeks!

    At least they're taking care of you. Riding the HT will give you character, so not all is lost.

    Yikes. I had a few small scratches on a tat that healed fine. Hope you have similar results.

    Add two busted spokes to my list. Not a super big deal, but I'm pretty disappointed since the wheels only have around 300 miles on them. I've been checking the tension regularly and it's seemed to stay pretty even since I retensioned before even using them. I guess I either didn't do a good of a job as I thought, they're shitty wheels, or I'm just really hard on rear wheels.

    Luckily I have a backup wheel set, so I can roll that until I get to the bike shop to pick up some more spokes...
